What the care home does well
The care of each person is addressed separately so that residents receive care based on their own needs. Good record keeping means that all staff are aware of what needs to be done to care for each person on a daily basis. Residents benefit from skilled staff who understand the needs of people with dementia. Plans to expand have been well thought through so that more people can soon benefit from the service.
What has improved since the last inspection?
Since the last inspection the staff team has stabilised, and morale is good. Residents are cared for by people they know which should help them feel secure. The installation of locks on bedroom doors has increased the privacy for the residents when receiving assistance with personal care.
What the care home could do better:
A requirement has been made to make all bathrooms fit for use, so that residents have more choice. The home must make sure that residents or their representatives are given a statement about what weekly charges are made and who is responsible for them. The home needs some redecoration and refurbishment so that the environment is more attractive. Residents would benefit from a less crowded feeling in the main reception area. This is being addressed by the planned building and refurbishment/
